Gisele, 29, and her husband, hunky New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, welcomed baby Benjamin in early December. The football star announced his new arrival at a press conference, calling his son’s birth “a wonderful experience in my life.” Sweet little Benjamin, along with his mama (who also happens to be the world’s highest-paid supermodel), made his debut on the cover of Brazilian mag Quem recently.
Gisele, who famously had a water birth, during which she says she felt “no pain” and “no fear,” told Quem that she was “washing the dishes and making pancakes” just two days after giving birth. No surprise then that she was back to work a mere six weeks later, modeling for Brazilian fashion line Colcci.
So far, there’s been no comment from model Bridget Moynahan, Brady’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his other son. But something tells me the two won’t be exchanging parenting tips!
The oldest Kardashian sister, Kourtney, 30,welcomed her son, Mason Dash, with boyfriend Scott Disick on December 14. Middle sister Kim has already claimed “favorite auntie” status, according to People.com.
Though Kourtney’s looking gorgeous just a few months after giving birth, she was quick to point out that OK! magazine’s recent “post-baby body” cover of her was not the real deal – it had been liberally Photoshopped (see above).
“One of those weeklies got it wrong again…they didn’t have an exclusive with me. And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26…But thanks!? she tweeted.
Kardashian also told Women’s Wear Daily that OK! “doctored and Photoshopped my body to make it look like I had lost all the weight, which I have not.”
Even so, she’s still hot. On February 4th Kourtney appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! wearing a short pink skirt and black mini blazer and told the host she had 15 more pounds to go. She also told Kimmel that since Mason came along her whole family has been a lot nicer to baby daddy Disick. “Since Mason … everything has been great and everyone has been getting along,” she said. Hmm … we’ll see how long that lasts, especially with Khloe! But not matter what her family thinks, it’s great to see Kourteney and her baby doing so well.
